Subject: [VUHams] VO-52 PE1RAH Trxp Switching 'ON'

Dear VO-52 (HAMSAT) users,

On behalf of HAMSAT VO-52 Mission Director, Operations Director and 
the entire HAMSAT Team, I take pleasure to inform the user community 

After the 'In-Orbit Maintenance Operations' the decision to turn 'ON' 
the payload transponder was taken and accordingly;

The Transponder No 2 i.e. The Dutch Transponder made by William 
Leijenaar PE1RAH would be switched 'ON' at 13:51 UT on 08.03.2012 
during orbit # 37006 over India.

A 'Critical Comparative Signal Report' between the Indian and Dutch 
transponder would be of great help for further evaluations and 
necessary actions for the maintenance the transponder in good and 
healthy condition for better services and also, the inputs would be 
very valuable to the respective transponder designers.

We all hope, Williams PE1RAH would be very happy with our decision and 
behalf of every one here in India involved with project, wish Williams 
and his transponder all the very best and good luck.

Thanks to AMSAT-India (Nitin VU3TYG) for the all the help and 
co-ordination provided.
